DISTROSERIES in distro abstraction not useful/sustainable

Bug Description

Currently, software-center checks the current codename against a list in the distro modules. There are multiple modules for different Linux distributions. The value seems to only ever be used for falling back to an older series when checking for reviews, if the result set is empty. This is something that should be done on the server, not on the client. We should be displaying the same results as the package index web site.
